As snug as a pug in a rug

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

TH­ESE lov­able mutts are keep­ing warm in style this win­ter thanks to a gen­er­ous do­na­tion of knit­ted blan­kets.

Char­ity fundraiser San­dra Broad stitched 18 of them to keep the pooches at Dogs Trust Hare­field cosy in the cold weather.

The colour­ful cre­ations ap­pear to have hit the right note with three-year-old labrador Win­nie and lurcher pup­pies Vera and Va­le­ria, both 11 weeks old.

Richard Moore, man­ager at the re­hom­ing cen­tre, said: “We were de­lighted to re­ceive such a gen­er­ous do­na­tion and, as you can see from this pic­ture, the dogs are equally happy.”

Mrs Broad, 72, of Horn­buckle Close, Har­row, spent six months knit­ting to­gether more than 1,600 coloured squares to make the woollen blan­kets.

The Hare­field Dogs Trust branch, in Harvil Road, cares for about 120 dogs at any given time.
